Traffic Impact Assessment of a Proposed Shopping Mall in a Medium-Sized Town

Urbanization rapidly causes new construction and other developmental activities, and that has its own traffic impact which affects the surrounding road network. One such developmental activity is proposed for a town center in the form of a three-story shopping mall. The objective of this study is to assess the impact of the proposed shopping mall in the town center on the existing road network and review the future transportation infrastructure requirements to accommodate additional trips that would be generated by the developmental activity. Impact assessment is done by comparing the volume of vehicles at different time periods with the theoretical capacities of the road network. After the impact assessment, traffic management plan was developed to reduce the negative impacts on the road network due to land use change. The strategy for the traffic management was also analyzed using PTV VISSIM software and found that the mitigation measures suggested could manage the traffic conditions at the town center.
